Summer Meal Planning

I mentioned yesterday I was in need of some new recipes, and I found some great ones on Pinterest. Usually when  I meal plan, I purchase ingredients for several meals, but don’t necessarily assign them a day of the week. For some reason I’m always changing my mind about what I want for dinner.  I usually just have a couple choices available for lunch, and breakfast is either a smoothie or eggs (not too exciting). Here’s what’s on my menu for the next week or so.



Slow cooker whole chicken via 100 Days of Real Food
BBQ Chicken Salad (though I will be using some WF or TJs BBQ sauce instead of making my own 😉
Homemade Burgers wrapped in Lettuce. Served with roasted potatoes and onions
Grilled tri-tip w/ quinoa salad
Homemade pizza w/ side salads
Steak and Mango Stir Fry


Salad in a jar (there are TONS of ideas on Pinterest)
Tuna Salad w/ veggies and crackers – for my tuna salad I just do tuna, mustard, and cottage cheese. Easy and high-protein = win.


Anything special on your summer menu? What are your go-to dinners?
